About the Author

Casey Rebecca Johnson is an assistant professor of Philosophy in the Politics and Philosophy Department at the University of Idaho. Prior to joining that department, Dr. Johnson was a post-doctoral fellow on the project on Humility and Conviction in Public Life at the University of Connecticut's Humanities Institute.


"This is a well-considered and lively collection of essays on the norms bearing on public disagreement. After the fall of 2016, with Brexit having passed in England and Donald Trump elected President of the United States, the question of what role protest and dissent plays in properly run public discourse became a pressing question for many academics. This book, then, is particularly timely . . . Social epistemologists, argumentation theorists, and political philosophers interested in deliberative democracy will find a great deal to appreciate in this volume." - Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
